CaptBullett asks:

Before 1 July 2020, will federal legislation protecting financial institutions that serve legitimate marijuana businesses from federal criminal and civil enforcement become law?

Even as an increasing number of U.S. states legalize medical and recreational marijuana, current federal law leaves banks and other financial institutions vulnerable to prosecution if they work with marijuana businesses (NPR). In September 2019 the House of Representatives passed the Secure And Fair Enforcement Banking Act of 2019, which would protect financial institutions from criminal and civil enforcement actions related to serving legitimate marijuana businesses (Reuters, Congress.gov).
